2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
18 glass / 54 bottle / 46 club
Exclusive wines from our Ancient Stones Estate Vineyard in The Rocks District of Walla Walla. This tiny AVA is situated on the ancient Walla Walla River bed. Softball-sized cobbles extend more than 300 feet into the earth, requiring vines to reach deep into the terroir in search of water. Deep rooting combined with radiant heat from the rocks during ripening make these wines bold and structured on the palette.
Aromatics of blackberries, thyme, and sagebrush with a little smoke lurking around the edges. The “four” shows strength but is supple and sensuous.
